Being lucky enough to live in such a beautiful place as Australia is not something I take for granted. My hubbie and I became Australian citizens a few years ago after spending time on working visas and permanent resident visas. All our boys are born and bred Aussies though, they even like vegemite!!! I am of the opinion you definitely have to have been born here to stomach that stuff!!
I really love all things Australian (except Vegemite) and some of my favourite finds for my little fair dinkum boys are story books with an Aussie theme. We are building up quite a little collection...
Sydney Opera House - undoubtedly the icon of modern Australia. A very sweet and beautifully illustrated tale.
I love wombat stories, if you've never seen a wombat in real life imagine a gorgeous hairy pillow with stumpy little legs - adorable!
I love this story, again the illustrations are so sweet.
This book is a big favourite! It is full of fantastic, bright illustrations of Australian wildlife. Truly, the animals on this amazing continent must be some of the most unique in the world. Even their names are intriguing - duck-billed platybus, hairy nosed wombat...
Koalas - or as I prefer to call them - living teddy bears!
The last 2 aren't a big hit with the boys yet but I often find when a book gets put away for a while and taken out again when they're that bit older it becomes a new favourite, so these 2 may yet have their day in the sun!
